00Loaded Hassleback potatoesThe Hassleback Potatoes were invented by a Swedish Chef at Restaurant Hasselbacken in Stockholm, and we have been enjoying them ever since. This particular style of potato is so versatile and easy to do- sliced into thin wedges but left joined at the bottom like a concertina, baked until the layers fan out into rounds of crispiness and served as is, or embellished with toppings of your choice. I had a pack of continental meat and some cheese and voila my humble potato was transformed into a feast of mediterranean flavours. This dish started out as a side but quickly became the main meal as I didnt want to spoil it by adding unnecessary extras and I found it so filling too. Its so easy to adapt this recipe to you and your families tastes by substituting the Salami or Chorizo for cooked ham and bacon or the Goats cheese for Cheddar. You could even let the kids add their own toppings before baking. Why not give this a try and let us know how you get on in the comments below. We love to hear your feedback x
00Halogen Baked Roasted New PotatoesA Halogen Oven is as an energy efficient and healthy alternative to conventional ovens. It doesnt need pre heating so is quicker to cook with too. It can produce the best crispy bacon I've ever tasted as well as yummy Roast and Baked Potatoes as well as anything else you would cook in a conventional oven. These Roast Potatoes are crispy, garlicky and buttery. They are a great addition to a Roast dinner or a salad. They are small and sweet and don't need par boiling before cooking. If you have just purchased a new HO and aren't sure what to use it for then why not try these and let us know how you got on in the comments below. We love to hear your thoughts x
00Slow Cooked New PotatoesNew Potatoes are quintessentially the flavour of spring and summer. Whether your favourite is a Jersey Royal or an Ayrshire tattie their earthy nutty flavoured is fantastic in salads or as a side dish to your roast dinner.This gentle cooking method also allows the full flavour of the potatoes to come through. Yes, you could boil them for 20mns on the hob or in the microwave (but I don't have one) but on hot summer days that's not ideal -who wants a hot, steamy kitchen.? so this was the better option imo. This means I can do lots at the one time and use some for dinner and some for potato salad during the week. It also means it can free up space on the hob if your cooking other dishes. Try out this method for yourself and let us know what you think
